Course content
A completion of the Bachelor Thesis is a necessary requirement for taking the State Bachelor Exam in all study fields guaranteed by the Department of Mathematics. The student obtains the topic of the Bachelor Thesis and also the work plan approved by his/her own supervisor with respect to the conditions published on the website of the department. In addition, the work plan contains the instructions how to start the research and how to write the thesis. In the first period, the student mainly familiarizes himself/herself with the relevant literature and discusses suitable research methods. The student regularly reports to the supervisor, and also to other students at seminars. The second period is reserved for the research work, consultations with the supervisor, writing the thesis, finalising and polishing the work.

Learning activities and teaching methods
Instruction based on dialogue, One-to-One tutorial, Task-based study method, Individual study, Students' self-study, Self-study of literature, Textual studies
  • E-learning (given by an e-learning course) - 320 hours per semester
prerequisite
professional knowledge
The course is offered only to the students of the study fields General Mathematics, Mathematics for Science, Scientific Computing, Mathematics and Financial Studies, Mathematics and Management. Academic writing skills, a good knowledge of qualitative and quantitative research methods and basic knowledge of thesis lay-out style are assumed. In case of insufficient background knowledge, the supervisor will suggest reading material to make up for it.
learning outcomes
Completion of this course will ensure that the student is able to: - independently choose and solve a related research question, and - retrieve information according to the subject, analyse and specify it, and - collect empirical material in a systematic and methodologically trustworthy manner, and - analyse the empirical material utilizing the theoretical framework, and - read other studies and their news releases and order studies, and - write a clear report on the findings according to reporting guidelines, and - present the empirical material in a clear and comprehensive way, and - defend the thesis.
